It’s hard to imagine a better companion for hiking or home emergencies like a power outage.

With LFP (LiFePO4) battery technology, the Anker 767 PowerHouse is a reliable and safe choice. It allows for more than 3,000 charging cycles, so you won’t have to worry about your battery running out of juice soon.There’s no doubt that the 767 PowerHouse is extremely powerful, yet convenient and portable. Unlike traditional generators that emit noise and smoke, this battery station operates virtually silently, making it suitable for indoor use. The only sound you’ll occasionally hear (mostly when you’re charging the station) is the cooling fans, which are activated when the power station is connected to high-power devices.Although this is a portable power station, it is one of the largest I have ever seen. At 67 pounds, it’s undeniably heavy, but the Anker has thoughtful features to make it easy to move. Like the suitcase, the PowerHouse 767 features a telescoping handle that extends from the side and allows it to be rolled on a pair of 4.72-inch wheels.These wheels can handle small obstacles and sharp floor transitions. However, carrying the PowerHouse 767 up or down stairs may be more difficult due to its weight. To solve this problem, Anker installed large, durable handles on each side to provide a secure grip when lifting.If you’re not strong enough, this may still be a problem considering the weight of the powerhouse. The 767 is designed to be durable and shock-resistant, but it is important to use caution when handling it to prevent accidents. I would recommend having a second person help move the station up or down to prevent any incidents.
Design and unpacking
We have already touched on the size and dimensions of this monster, but what about the general appearance and design of the station?
What’s in the box
Here’s everything you’ll find when you unbox your Anker PowerHouse 767:
- Anker SOLIX F2000 Power Station (PowerHouse 767)
- AC Charging Cable
- Car Charging Cable </ li>
- 5-port solar charging connector
- Accessory bag
- User manual
The top surface of the device is flat and convenient when you need to place devices on it while charging. On the front panel, you’ll find a variety of outlets and ports that provide a variety of charging options for your devices. There are three AC outlets (US version), four AC outlets with a TT-30R outlet specifically designed for connection to recreational vehicles (RVs), a pair of 12V vehicle outlets, three USB-C ports. and two USB-A ports. USB-C ports deliver an impressive 100W maximum power, allowing you to quickly charge large electronics like laptops. The USB ports are smart: they automatically charge the device when plugged in and turn it off when the power reaches 100%. The remaining outlets can be activated with the press of a button and will automatically turn off after 15 minutes if the connected device is not drawing power. This smart feature helps optimize PowerHouse 767’s battery life and ensures efficient power management.Above the outlets is a large LCD screen that displays the remaining charge level in percentage, as well as a semi-circle of power bars that gradually disappear to indicate the remaining battery capacity. The screen also displays icons indicating which outlets are currently in use, as well as an estimate of remaining run time based on current power consumption. While these estimates may not be accurate because they vary depending on different charging conditions, it is still useful to have them in mind.The front of the PowerHouse 767 also features a long LED strip that can be activated manually with the press of a button or controlled via the Anker mobile app via Bluetooth. The light bar has three lighting levels and can even flash an S.O.S. in emergency situations. On the back of the PowerHouse 767, behind the flip panel, you’ll find a reset button, a port for optional solar panels, and a NEMA-style power cord port (included) similar to those used to power most desktop PCs.
In addition to the power plant itself, Anker offers several additional options that expand its functionality.
- Expansion battery. If you’re looking for an even higher capacity power source, Anker offers an expansion battery compatible with the PowerHouse 767. By adding this expansion battery to the power station, you can effectively double the battery capacity, reaching an impressive 4096Wh (2048Wh + 2048Wh). This upgrade is especially useful during long hikes, extended power outages, or in situations where you need a powerful backup power source.
- Solar panels. Anker also provides optional solar panels compatible with the PowerHouse 767, turning it into a complete portable solar generator. Connecting solar panels to a port on the back of the power station allows it to be charged using solar energy. So you can make it an environmentally friendly and cost-effective power source for your outdoor adventures in your van or camper, as well as for off-grid living.
Performance and features
The Anker PowerHouse 767 provides excellent performance and a number of useful features that make it stand out as a reliable portable power station.
- Fast charging and universal outputs
The PowerHouse 767 features an impressive inverter that delivers 2400W AC power output and 3200W surge power. Needless to say, this station is capable of working with a variety of devices, not just the battery, including power-hungry tools and devices. It features three 100W USB-C ports, ideal for charging laptops and other powerful gadgets. Additionally, there are three AC outlets and two 12V vehicle outlets for flexibility in powering a variety of devices.
- Efficient charging options
The PowerHouse 767 can be charged in several ways, including AC power, solar panels, and car chargers. Charging times from mains are exceptionally fast and impressive: from 0% to 80% in just 50 minutes.Thanks to solar panels (maximum power consumption up to 1000 W), the power station can be charged from 0 to 100% in about 2.5 hours, which is an excellent solution for off-grid charging.
- Gallium nitride technology and durability
The PowerHouse 767 uses gallium nitride electronics and GaNPrime (or GaN) technology, which is also responsible for ultra-fast and efficient charging from the mains. These electronics help control the temperature during intensive charging and save energy during the charging process. The use of industrial grade electronic components ensures its durability. Anker claims that this beast of a powerhouse can withstand six times the charge/discharge cycles of standard components.
- Intelligent display and control
The power station features a clear LCD display that displays important information such as input and output power, remaining battery capacity, and estimated charging and discharging times. It also displays alarms and indicates when the ECO energy-saving mode is active, which automatically turns off all outlets after 15 minutes of inactivity to save energy.Compared to the Anker 757, which I reviewed previously, the 767’s successor is a larger, more powerful, and even more convenient solution to your power needs.
Application and connectivity
Since the 767 is quite heavy, I consider it a blessing that Anker offers a dedicated mobile app that allows you to remotely control the power plant. The power station does not have built-in Wi-Fi, but provides seamless connectivity via the app via Bluetooth. To set it up, you need to turn on Bluetooth on your smartphone and long press the Bluetooth connection button on the station. When it starts flashing, it is ready to connect. Download the Anker app to your smartphone and sync it with your 767.The Anker app allows you to remotely monitor and control your power plant. You can check battery status, track power consumption, and receive low battery alerts.The app also allows you to control the power saving mode, as well as customize the LED strip and put it into SOS mode in case of emergency. The application is very simple and not overloaded with various elements.
When it comes to battery life, the Anker PowerHouse 767 excels. It charges quickly when plugged into a wall outlet, taking less than two hours to reach full capacity. Anker proudly states that with just one hour of AC access, the PowerHouse 767 can achieve an impressive 80% power. The power plant is equipped with modern LiFePO4 batteries, known for their reliability and long service life, capable of withstanding up to 3000 charging cycles. To provide additional peace of mind, Anker offers a generous 5-year warranty, ensuring customers can rely on the PowerHouse 767 for years to come.Anker also prioritizes durability with a “drop-resistant Unibody design” that makes the powerhouse resistant to impacts and impacts. However, it’s worth noting that the PowerHouse 767 is not weatherproof and doesn’t even have the protective cover that was present on the 757, so it’s best to protect it from harsh weather conditions.
Is Anker PowerHouse 767 worth buying?
Anker SOLIX F2000 (PowerHouse 767) is an excellent high-performance fast charging power station. If you want a power station that you can take with you on a camping trip or use as an emergency power source at home that is also easy to use, safe and durable, the 767 is one of the best options for you.At the same time, if you’re short on space and want something truly portable, the 767 might not be the ideal model for your home. It’s big and heavy, but in return you get safety and more power.Overall, I would personally recommend purchasing the Anker 767 even as your first portable power station. This will definitely give you peace of mind and you will never have to worry about running out of juice on the road again.
